Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in a government database. The official, worried that the information was being withheld from law enforcement, released the remaining documents.

What of the missing SARs? From whom did the additional $3 Million come?

Who gave the order to remove the SARs from the database?

For a law-enforcement agent to risk everything to expose this coverup speaks to the seriousness of the matter and suggests that the leaker may have shared even more details with Avenatti.

Cohen is in deep shit.

What will he be willing to do to save his ass?

We know the answer......

Who gave the order to remove the SARs from the database?

I see reporting now that the Cohen records are not missing at all from the database. Some official gave an order to segregate all the Cohen records in the Treasury system so not just anyone could get hold of them. Closing the barn door after the horse escaped, it seems. But there may be more records that didn't get leaked to Avenatti yet so it makes some sense.

There were reports about a week ago, not very widely covered. Maybe Stormy was on the libmedia shows flashing her boobs again so they didn't have time to cover it.

Notice they are just lifting links and quotes to far better known sources.

Political Wire: Cohen’s Financial Records Are Not Missing

“Records pertaining to the financial activities of President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen are not missing from a government database; rather Treasury Department officials have taken the highly unusual step of restricting access to them even from certain law enforcement agencies,” BuzzFeed News reports.

“The New Yorker reported that a law enforcement official — worried the information about Cohen’s banking records had been removed from government databases and therefore might be covered up — had admitted to leaking some of what was still accessible.”

If I have the timeline correct, that little bitch who leaked a few records to the press because he was so worried about records disappearing is even more guilty than it would first appear.

They can nail him to the wall for this if Snoozy Jeff at DOJ wants to. Mnuchin is likely to insist on it.

Good news!

Perhaps the prosecutor already has the SARs.....

They had them all along. They restricted them, fearing some little bitch would leak them.

And then she did.

I hope they throw the book at her.

"Gee, your honor, I thought maybe a crime was being covered up even if it wasn't so I felt entitled to commit a more serious crime of invading financial privacy while holding a position of trust. Was that so wrong?"

Sure, anyone is entitled to commit any crime to try to prosecute Cohen, who may have done nothing illegal at all. Or those records might have nothing to do with criminal activity.

But, no, you hate Trump and anyone can commit any crime they want, as long as they say, "I wuz just trying to convict that Orange Hitler who stole our WH".

What a hack.

Your words, not mine.

I said, "I don't care about 'her'"

Do you not care about president dip-shit's personal attorney selling access and influence to OUR government?

I think they will bring the same charges against him, regardless of this inconsequential leak of some of his confidential financial records.

I'd laugh if Cohen walked away scot-free and this little bitch got 5 years in prison. And then he sued her for defamation and she had to pay him all her earnings for the rest of her life.

What I find interesting is how clean Trump actually is. All this scrutiny and illegal wiretaps etc. And they have nothing on him. He must be the most clean "politician" in generations. We are truly lucky to have such a great leader.

If we can just get rid of those dead enders.

He wasn't always so clean. Doing business internationally and even in corrupt places like NYC means sooner or later you have to do business with unsavory characters. The Dem pols, the courts, the mob-owned linen and trash services, the casino moguls, etc.

But he did keep pretty clean in his presidential run, considering how extensive his corporate name brand is involved in big real estate projects around the world, often in unsavory countries that are blatantly corrupt by our standards.
